    Hi,

    Thanks for your question. It will take some time before I can release a new version of this skin for MP1.2 (but it will come). Have my hands full with the FanartHandler plugin and the Backdrops skin.

    What would be the main things you would like in the Beta version compared to today. I will start by just making current version compatible and this can be done in a few weeks. But I also like to know what improvements you would like to see in the skin.

    best regards
    cul8er

    AW: XFactor for MP1.2

    I'm a bit disappointed, that a new version will take some time. XFactor is my favorite skin after all, but I can wait.

    Hello, cul8er!
    Sorry for my English ...
    I would like to see in your skin:
    1. I use the Classical form. If the folder is a file folder.jpg, after navigating to the folder displays the cover of the file folder.jpg. If not to touch anything, then after a while, this cover is lost.
    2. I would like to see the current time during the film production on pause. I made ​​a change to the file common.player.xml:
    Code (Text):
    1.  
    2.                 <control>
    3.                         <description>pause label1</description>
    4.                         <type>label</type>

    cul8er, I've been running Xfactor in MP 1.2 Alpha since Alpha was released. There are just a couple minor issues (No onscreen keyboard etc).

    Would I be able to upgrade to MP 1.2 Beta with the same functionality or will the entire skin break?

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    Just to let you all know that work to port x-factor to MP1.2 has started (and is well on the way).

    I will do this in steps;
    1. Make necessary changes to make the skin 1.2 compatible, then release an alpha version
    2. Make improvements on current skin and then release a beta
    3. Fix reported bugs and then release the real version for 1.2

    In the process of making the skin 1,2 compatible I will also make it full HD (1920x1080).

    best regards
    cul8er

    Hi,

    Thanks for picking up the devellopment of this skin.

    In the mean time I have grown to like the "Backdrop" skin, its very nice.
    The only downside is that it doesnt show "movie info" automatically (You first need to click the movie).

    So I would like to have the Xfactor skin also and then one day decide on which to use....

    Kind regards,

    TrendyUser

    Thank you cul8er!

    I have found no other skin that shows the large amount of movies on the screen that X-Factor does in list view, so I'm going to stick with it for good!

    Avalon shows a big list. I've been using that now while I wait for the update to x-factor. Can't wait to see the new version. Thanks!
